TranzAct Partners with LeanLogistics to Provide TMS to Small and Mid-Market Companies First Step in an Extensive List of Synergistic Technology Exchanges
ELMHURST, Ill., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --TranzAct Technologies, the leading provider of Transportation Spend Management Solutions and Software, announces it has partnered with LeanLogistics to provide complete Transportation Management System functionality to its small and mid-market company customers.
Since 1984, TranzAct Technologies has delivered state-of-the-art spend management solutions that enable small and medium-sized (SMB) shippers to plan and control transportation expenditures. SMB shippers often lack the buying power, tools, expertise, and technology to negotiate the best rates and carefully-manage transportation spend for their companies. Hundreds of small and medium shippers employ TranzAct's Freight Payment and Freedom Logistics solutions to realize the best results and optimize their overall transportation spend.
More recently, many of these shippers have asked TranzAct to manage their day-to-day transportation operations for them. As this Managed Services business grew, TranzAct sought to expand its technology to encompass a broader scope of operational functions. TranzAct chose LeanLogistics to provide Transportation Management functions beyond the scope of its own software capabilities.
"We chose LeanLogistics for many reasons. They will provide the technology components we need today, and we believe their system is the most functionally complete and the easiest for our staff to implement and use," said Jean Regan, President and CEO, TranzAct Technologies, Inc. "In addition, our two companies have identified five areas of technology and process exchange where we can enhance each other's services and benefit our collective customers."
"We are excited to gain TranzAct as a customer. We believe our technology can enable processes that will bring significant benefits to TranzAct's SMB marketplace," said Dan Dershem, President of LeanLogistics. "In addition, we look forward to sharing more of our technology with TranzAct, and employing some of their advanced spend and risk management components within our own system and customer base."
TranzAct will begin using components of the LeanLogistics On-Demand TMS® immediately and the respective staffs will interface the systems appropriately. Although some minor functional overlap exists, both companies have identified the most effective component to employ for each business process.
